1. Um, you just might want to add the @ sign to indicate that that's his twitter account
and give a clue that he's well aware that it's a derogatory term and he chose it for himself.

My first impression at seeing your thread was "That's a side to Nadin I've never seen before and didn't expect" and I almost hit alert before checking your link.

2. It's his blog name as well as his Twitter account. Link:
http://www.sandmonkey.org /

I'm sorry you thought Nadin had posted anything derogatory -- she wouldn't have. Sandmonkey and other Egyptian bloggers have been posted about so often here in recent days that I'm not surprised to see their online names pop up in subject lines now.

4. There's an awful lot to follow, and this is the first I've heard of this particular person.
It's a lot to assume everyone would automatically know what she was talking about based on the headline alone.

Now that Real Time w Bill Maher is over I'll go check out the interview.

7. Much better headline on that thread. Much better.
It's not that hard to do.

5. Thanks for the link, Nadin! I caught it live thanks to advance notice on Twitter.
I thought he handled the interview very well. I'm in awe of him and all the other brave activists there.
